Crystals 101 – How to Use Crystals In Everyday Life

Danielle Williams is a Reiki Master, Akashic Records Reader and Mindfulness Coach. She helps her clients to connect with their divine guidance and align with their higher self. One of the ways that she does this is through the use of crystals.

Danielle came on the show today to share her knowledge on how to use crystals in a daily practice.We talked about what makes crystals different from a rock or any other object and how it is that they work with our energy field. She also shared tips on how to use crystals for meditation, sleep and even clearing and protecting your home.

What are Crystals?

Crystals are solidified crystalline structures of minerals. They have a very specific chemical composition which gives them their unique color and shape. Crystals are thought to hold a high vibrational frequency because of their pure composition as well as their connection to sacred geometry.

Sacred geometry is considered the basic fundamental building blocks of our Universe and is based on mathematics and form. Sacred Geometry can be found in all of nature and perhaps most clearly in crystals. If you were to look at a crystal through a microscope you would find that they are made of repeating patterns. It is the arrangement of atoms that created the unique shape that each crystal takes.

The History of Crystals in Healing

Crystals have been used in healing for thousands of years and can be traced back most noteably through ancient Asian cultures. They based their belief in the crystals healing abilities on the principal of Chi (or Life Force Energy). They often used crystals in healing the energy centeres of the body known as the chakras. This practice is still used today. Many energy workers use crystals to balance and clear the chakra systems in their clients.

Using Crystals In Every Day Life

Crystals can be a wonderful addition to your daily wellness practices. Even if you are skeptical of their healing abilities, you can still use them as a focal point for setting your intentions. Intention is key when it comes to every thing that we do in life.

You can use crystals in meditation by placing the crystal in your palm or gazing into the crystal. You can set up crystal grids to manifest your intentions and desires. You can also place crystals by your bed side to call in guidance in your dreams or get a good nights rest.

What crystals should you start with?

If you are wanting to start using crystals but you aren’t sure where to start. Here are the top 5 crystals that I recommend you start with:

  1. Amethyst: Calming, Dreams, Sleep, Intuition, Protection, meditation
  2. Selenite- Cleansing, Intuition, spirit communication, meditation
  3. Citrine- Joy, Prosperity, Abundance, Energy
  4. Clear Quartz: Amplifier, Cleansing, Energizing
  5. Black Obsidian- Grounding, Protection, Peace

Manifestation With Crystal Grids

This is something that I find so facinating. I have used crystal grids several times now and it always feels so sacred and magical. In the show Danielle mentioned some grid cloths that she uses. I was able to find some really beautiful and low cost ones on Amazon. I provided the link down below.
